Slosh Tubz new company project "Square Peg" frame laying 1987 GMC Jimmy

Well here it is ! Estimated completion SEMA 2013 ! My wife decided she wanted her own vehicle that could haul the whole family and pull Cloud 9 to some long distance shows and of course showcase our product "Slosh TUbz Squared" ...so here we are project "SQUARE PEG" !!! It is a 1987 GMC JIMMY 4x4..soon to be a 2wd layed out on the ground ! LS powered, with a nice Retro theme probably go with the early round eye front end and a two tone paint with the early trim.....still deciding on colors ! So here is some pictures of it yesterday , i should have it at work today i will steam clean it top to bottom tonight , see if i can get the motor running so i can put that on craigslist (it is supposed to run great TBI 350) then start dissasembling all of the rest of the chassis ...more craigslist !

The first picture is me and my wife Sarah, i just thought i would show you who i am building this for . The rest are the beautiful original paint , zero rust 1987 Jimmy... project Square Peg !! This is going to be fun so stay tuned !

Likewise! Should be relatively decent since it seems he's gotten the learning curve pretty much over with Cloud 9!

Seriously, this is going to be the bad azz Blazer I've always wanted to do if I knew how to do the cool work that he does!

I wonder how high the posts will get with this build?

Re: Slosh Tubz new company project "Square Peg" frame laying 1987 GMC Jimmy

I am new to the Square body side, i am looking for all of the advice i can get ! So if you have any tips feel free to share ! I am planning on using the early front clip on this and my thoughts are to modify the early hood on the windshield side so i can still run the cowl panel , has anyone done this ?
